Design and Implementation of Electric Assisted Bicycle with Self Recharging Mechanism
During the revolution for the eco-friendly technologies bicycles were the most depended modes of transportation, along with this the consideration of the increase in fuel price and the environmental factors we must admit that it is far more better to use a bicycle over a motor vehicle for short distance travelling. Imagine how useful would the bicycle be if even the small effort applied by man for climbing slopes and riding on rough terrain is reduced in it. We thought the same way to develop the basics of our project “The e-Bike”. The unit developed by us is a combination of the standard geared bicycle with an electric power motor cum alternator that would assist the rider throughout his journey. The system is modified in such a way that the rider can make choice of which mode he prefers i.e. he can either choose the bicycle to be driven completely with the electric motor or he can choose it to be driven manually by himself. The idea of mounting the motor cum alternator assembly onto a geared bicycle was to reduce the effort to-be applied for extra little weight that the rider will have to take along with the bicycle. Detailed study about the gross weight has been mentioned inside the report. The unit has been designed in such a way that people of any age group can depend on it. Our idea of implementation of the project was mainly biased towards providing inter college transportation system and to reduce the use of automobiles inside the campus  as a tribute to the “GREEN ENERGY”.
